Guest Book Comments

My first visit was back in 2006 and my husband has been coming here since he was a lad. The place is beautiful and charming as ever. We came last year and will be back next year. Always have a good rest when I come. Blessings always.

Our 26th Christmas in the Granary! Our 42nd Christmas in Quality Cottages! It was as wonderful as ever. 18 of us spread over the 3 cottages at Cerbid ranging from 2 weeks to 83 years old! Thank you for providing us with such a fabulous Christmas tree. We will see you next year.

Despite some appalling weather we thoroughly enjoyed exploring this part of Wales. Small children loved Whitesands beach and crabbing at Solva. The Shed at Porthgain has the best ever fish & chips. Blue Water boat trip round Ramsey Island very highly recommended - ages 4-72. Pembroke Castle (on a very wet day) - do take the history tour. Also enjoyed successful mackerel fishing and eating the results!

We thought The Granary exceptionally well appointed and comfortable. Loved all the hot water and children and dog loved the garden. Everything was well thought out.

Thank you from us all for providing such a comfortable and great base for our family holiday. No one got up early enough to see the otters, we were all exhausted after our activities and slept so well.

Lovely place, perfect for our family. Beautiful area, picture perfect walks, friendly local people. Great vacation. Places to go: St Non's, Porthgain and the burial cromlechs. Bethesda Farm Shop is a must go for butchers - outstanding lamb & beef. Stackpole walks are worthy of a look.

Our first visit to The Granary - but certainly not our last - what a fantastic place to spend a special occasion (my 70th birthday) with the whole family. The cottage is fantastic - with nothing left to chance. All the comforts of home and so tastefully designed. We have had the most fantastic time. Thank you so much.

Excellent accommodation in a peaceful setting. Facilities very good. Dogs loved the garden and space. Eight of us with dogs had a good holiday - Whitesands Bay was a particular favourite beach with the dogs.

Lovely Christmas feel to the Granary. The internet is frequently not adequate to run the TV. A better solution would be a Humax Freesat recorder. (It is always difficult to watch live TV on a family group holiday). Couldn't get the washing machine to operate, but we were able to use Cerbid House. Otherwise up to the usual first class standard and very well equipped. We had a most enjoyable time.

Thank you for your comments and suggestions which we will pass onto the caretaking team. Delighted to see you all once again, looking forward to welcoming you back next Christmas.

Good spacious house and well thought out.

K Anderson - 14th April 2018

accommodation excellent however not informed of preparation for forthcoming music festival in nearby field and had people entering the garden to access water supply. Rather concerning as we had a total of 4 dogs as well as people intruding on our privacy. To be informed of this happening before the event would have been useful.

Christine Bond - 7th July 2017

Comfortable and well equipped. Wi-fi very weak and inconsistent, which is one thing that should be improved.

Boats leave from St Justinians (tickets sold in St Davids and Solva) to see the magnificent Pembrokeshire coastline or the unforgettable bird islands. Do remember your cameras and binoculars. Look out for dolphins, porpoise, seals and seabirds.
